Anamonics (short for ANAgram mneMONICS) are sentences designed to help you remember letters that can (and cannot) be combined with common groups of letters to form words, usually bingos (seven or eight letter words).

As with word lists, creating your own anamonics makes them easier to remember, but is tricky and time consuming. Luckily, John Chew's Canonical List of Anamonics is available, and is highly recommended. This list contains hundreds of anamonics, many from top experts. Even if you intend to make your own, this list will give you an idea of how to get started.
